    DashCommand and PID not displaying CMP Offset retard

    Try using the old cap/new rotor or new cap/old rotor, sometimes the new parts are junk. 2.5 off is not going to cause a problem, cmp doesn't even set a code until it is 14 off.

    Tight/Binding Steering Issue

    Look at AC Delco and Delphi products reviews on Amazon. Alot of the recent reviews will give bad reviews and say it was made in China so I am not so sure they are quality anymore. Now the GM Genuine/ AC Delco OEM line which is mostly made in Mexico seems to be ok but those parts are disappearing...

    No nothing else, try double checking your settings.

    Tight/Binding Steering Issue

    Great warranty, so I looked up the gear and pump and the country of origin was China so I think Bluetop/RedHead rebuilds is still the best bet.

    Vortec head rebuild

    Flow numbers for new vortec heads sold by Pace. The stock Vortec 305 heads flow at least as good. If your stock 99 ones check out good use them, otherwise go aftermarket Vortec.

    Looking for Peanut small roller cam(s)

    Chevrolet Performance #12041264 191/196 @.050 .414/.428 111LSA This cam was used in full size trucks and Caprice/Impala SS so obviously it is a low torque cam, even used in 305s and mini LT1s. You can probably get new take offs from ebay or buy it from Jegs/Summit.

    Intake manifold question

    The best one is the Edelbrock one used with their mpfi conversion but that one is very rare. Best bet is get a used regular Edelbrock one and have it bored out to match the stock one.

    Blend door actuator

    I have a 98 and a 94 both had a popping sound, the recirculating one goes bad in these alot. I replaced the 98 it was easy enough but the 94 is a pain.

    Looking for Peanut small roller cam(s)

    Why not just put the Vortec roller cam in? Much more common to find and runs in the same rpm range but more torque than the Caprice one for sure.

    Alternator question.....

    Same here on my 98's cluster when the headlights come on, the important thing is the multimeter shows battery and alternator are good.

    A/C compressor turns on and off?

    Usually if it kicks on and off like that it is overcharged.
